Joe Bnllanfant'a Home. Senator Carmack's comparison of President Roosevelt to a Tennessee horse whose "natural gait was running away," has touched the rislbles of the nation. The stenographic report of Senator Carmack's remarks in the Congressional Record, shows his exact language to have been: "He resembles in his habits of speech my friend Joe Ballanfant's horse, of which remarkable animal it was said that running away was his natural gait" The Columbia Herald says the incident upon which the witticism was founded, occurred while Senator Carmack was a schoolboy at Gulleoka. Joe Ballanfant was then a dashing young cavalier and an ex-Confederate soldier, and was very much admired among the ladies. He rode in those days what The Herald describes "as a crazy gray horse," and one day, it is related, "he came careening down the road in a cloud of dust." As he passed the school the boys, among whom was the future senator, watched with glowing admiration the gallant equestrian and his caracoling steed, and one of them shouted: "Is he running away, Joe?" "Running away?" replied Joe. "Thunder! Running away is his natural gait." The story has survived all these years in Maury county, but it remained for Carmack to tell it to the nation and thus immortalize that remarkable steed.?Nashville Banner. Ed and His Brother.?The revival of the talk of Edward O. Wolcott going into the president's cabinet recalls a story told at the expense of the former Colorado senator. Years ago when exSenator Wolcott and nis brother, Henry Wolcott, established a law and real estate office in Georgetown, col., Henry ran the real estate end of the enterprise and did fairly well, but there was nothing doing in the law part, which Edward looked after, and, becoming discouraged, he decided to move to an adjoining camp, where a silver lead had been struck. He packed his belongings on a donkey and was about to start when he remembered his first sign, which read, "Ed Wolcott & Brother." "You don't want that sign, do you, Henry?" he asked. "No; take it along," replied Henry. The young lawyer and embryo statesman packed the sign on the donkey and arrived at the new mining camp about dusk the next afternoon. The miners came up and looked him over. One of them read the sign strapped to the donkey's back and asked: "Which of you all is Ed?" Said He Was No Speaker.?Wm. Alden Smith, of Michigan, illustrating the value of honesty in politics, told a story the other day of an old governor of Michigan, who became a candidate on condition that he should not be asked to make speeches. An occasion arose, however, when the regular orators were absent from a meeting, and the crowd insisted on hearing from the oonHMoto himself Hp walked to the front and bravely announced that he was no speaker, with considerable repetition, and after a little halting proceeded to talk for three-quarters of an hour. When the meeting was over the candidate had quite come to the conclusion that he was a speaker after all, and especially did he feel so when an old farmer came up to him to say that, although a life-long Democrat, he had decided as a result of what he had heard, to vote this time for the Republican candidate. Before the latter, in his blushes, could stammer out a response, the farmer continued: "What we want as governor is honest men. You are one. You said you were no speaker. You told the truth. I shall vote for you." The Doctor's Advice Too Late.?A story is told of a man who went to see a doctor. The doctor examined him carefully, and, with a grave face told him that he was very ill, and asked him if he had consulted any one else. "Oh," said the man, "I went to see a chemist and asked his advice, and he"? "Chemist!" the doctor broke in angrily. "What was the good of that? The best thing to do when a chemist gives you advice is to do exactly the opposite." * "And he," the patient continued, "ad -1 ,1 * ? ????? *?Aii * Pocseall'c viseu mc iu vjvuic iu jvu. ?v-uoov.ii w Journal.

After the sermon a woman came up to him, her face beaming with pleasure. "Oh, I am so grateful for that sermon " she said, clasping his hand and shaking it warmly. His heart glowed for a few moments?only for a moment, though. "Yes," she went on fervently, "I never knew before what was the matter with my fuchias."

June 14: The fireman's picnic in the Sam Harris grove, Thursday, was the most successful Jaunt of the kind the department has ever had. There were many interesting incidents, but perhaps the one that was more so than others was the initiation of George Jenkins and Tom Wylie. The ordeal embraced a wallowing in Stony branch and a paddling while the candidate rested on the broad back of Will Neely. As Howard Agurs would say, they got "hockmalindsey." Fried chicken, fried fish and fried stew was abundant and the best of good humor pievai'.ed throughout the day. As this was the annual meeting, the department entered into an election of officers, which resulted in Major A. H. White being chosen again for the presidency and Mr. W. L. Black secretary and treasurer. E. R. Avery, J. S. White, C. H. Branson, W. C. Hutchison, J. N. McElwee, S. J. Kimball and J. J. Hull were elected honorary members of the department A number from the city enjoyed a day's outing Wednesday at the home of Mr. Hope Starnes, in the country. When the hour of 1 o'clock arrived^ those present partook of a bountiful dinner that had been prepared by Mr. C. R. Starnes and his brother and it goes without saying that the occasion was much enjoyed. Hope has many friends in the city as well as country, and to spend a day at his home is always looked forward to with much pleasure and enjoyment.... Miss Amelia Kennedy spent a few hcurs in the city, Thursday, on the way to her home at Yorkville from Kingstree, where she has been teaching school Mr. J. B. Pegram, of Yorkville, was in the city Wednesday, on his way to Charlotte, to attend the funeral of his brother's son, whose death occurred Tuesday, of dysentery. Jule Toms, a strange Negro who has been employed at the Catawba Power Co.'s dam, was arrested Thursrinv hv Pnilopman Lanerlev. on a war rant charging him with waylaying and shooting Mr. Sam Barron near the latter's home on the night of May 31st. Toms was at work at the dam when the officer took him in charge. He was arrested upon information given by Dom Stewart, an employe of Mr. T. M. Carothers, Dom claiming that Toms had revealed to him that he fired the shot that filled Mr. Barron's body full of No. 6 shot. Toms was to have been accorded a preliminary hearing before Magistrate Beckham yesterday afternoon It will be remembered that when Mr. Craighead resigned the position of president of Clemson college, a hue and cry went up that because three of the leading religious denominations in the state had each had a representative as president of a state college, the fourth and perhaps the strongest denomination numerically, was entitled to have one of its members made president of Clemson. As if in compliance with this demand, Mr. Hartzog was given the place, notwithstanding he had achieved no distinction as an educator. However, notwithstanding his inexperience and exacting duties, he has developed more capacity for governing the institution than did his much-heralded predecessor. The fact remains, however, as the Charleston Post observes, that whatever good qualities Mr. Hartzog may have it is certain that his day of usefulness has passed at Clemson, and he should have been permitted to go without hindrance. It was very consider ate, of course, for the trustees to make it easy for the president of the college and to spare his reputation, but it is scarcely commendable that a great state institution should be sacrificed to one man's interest. CHESTER. Lantern, June 13: Chester can boast of having on her police force one of the tallest men in the state. No one is able to walk over him. While he was attending a camp meeting service one time, everybody was standing up; the minister, thinking that Mr. Darby was taking an advantage, told him to get down off the bench. Mr. Darby told him that no man could make him get off the bench on which he was standing Misses Susie and Mary Caldwell, Janie Burns, Wrennie Peay, Bessie Irwin, Mrs. S. B., Miss Susie and Mr. Robert Lathan, Mrs. A. G. Brice, the Misses Cornwell, Messrs. Will Irwin, Sam Guy and Henry White returned from Due West last night. On account of a wrecked bridge between Carlisle and Whitmire the train did not arrive until about midnight Mr. J. W. Dunovant brought to The Lantern office yesterday, a cotton bloom. He says that he wants to beat Mr. W. Y. White's hot house plants. This is the first we have heard of this year Master Howard, son of Dr. W. G. White, of Yorkville, is visiting relatives in and about town this week. Stenographer H. I. McCaw passed through town Tuesday evening, on his way to Yorkville from Winnsboro Special Agent Thomas Howard, of the rural free delivery service, has been in the county the most of this week, inspecting routes and examining applicants for mail carriers. On Tuesday two routes were inspected. One from here by way of the Peden's bridge road to J. T. McDill's, thence to Wellridge and back by the Rossville road, and one leading from Richburg to Rossville, by way of Mt. Prospect, and returning to Richburg by way of Mr. J. M. Caldwell's. Messrs. J. J. and S. E. Wylie stood the examination for the carrier's place of the former proposed route and Mr. J. T. McCrorey for the latter. Mr. J. M. Wise has gotten up a route to Halsellville, going the Simpson road from here, and returning by way of the Mobley road. This route was inspected Wednesday, and on that afternoon, Messrs. W. T. Sheriff, Itobert Perry and John Moore stood the examination for the carrier's place on this route. Mr. A. N. Grant has gotten up a petition for the establishment of a route to the Armenia neighborhood. This may also be examined before Mr. Howard leaves the county. The petition was forwarded to Representative D. E. Finley, on Monday. The people of the rural sections are doing a good thing in endeavoring to have mail brought to their doors every day. Of course some will necessarily have to go a quarter or a half-mile after their T mail, but this is a decided improvement over the present arrangement, some having to go five and six miles to get their mail. We should have a perfect net-work of routes established through- ? out the county. The good work has A started, let it continue. GASTON. 0 Gastonia Gazette, June 13: A tall Negro was consulting the lawyers a few n days ago as to his liability for pay- v ment of polltax. He had previously n advised Sheriff Armstrong that he had Sl been told he could get out of paying it c on account of being so high. The sher- ^ iff responded that he, too, had heard a talk of such a thing in case of persons c whose height lifted their heads clear a out of the county. "But to be sure about it," said the sheriff, "you'd bet- v ter see a lawyer about it." The tall * son of Ham is still figuring, we sup- v pose, on the difference between poll-tax 1 and counsel's fee Train No. 12, yesterday afternoon, carried a special e car loaded with young people from Ers- 6 kine and Due West colleges on the homeward trip.

'he Ghantllent Ghost of the Modern Centuries. Today we saw St. Pierre, the ghastest ghost of the modern centuries, tut yesterday the fairest of the fair f the wondrous cities of the storied .ntilles, bright, beautiful, glorious, listening and shimmering in her prism f tropical radiance, an opalescent city 1 a setting of towering forest and lountalns; now a waste of ashen gray, Ithout life, form, color, shape, a drear lonotone, a dim blur on the landcape?it seems even more than the ontrast between life ana aeatn. ine ead may live. St. Pierre is not alive, nd never will be. Out of shape has ome a void. It is the apotheosis of nnihilation. To one who sits amid he ruins and gazes the long miles upward over the seamed sides of La elee, still thundering her terrible ,'rath, may come some conceptions of he future ruin of the worlds. As we drew near, Mont Pelee reveald herself more and more definitely? aunt, haggard, forbidding, uplifting lto cloudy obscurity. Poised over her ead hung a giant smoky pillar, rising igh above the clouds, narrow and lack at the base, widening and lightning as it ascended until it spread up-shaped at the top like the stem nd bowl of a champagne glass. It was a giant signpost pointing downward: "Here is La Pelee." Then occurred a wonderful thing, no tore unusual indeed that the rising of he sun, but it is not given to everyody to see the sun rise over an awakned and wrathful Pelee. The great orb eemed to spring suddenly from behind he dark mass, lighting the low-hang ig ciouas into an tne coiora ui uic rlsm. Light fleecy clouds they were hat hung directly over the mountain op and part way down the flanks, 'hey hung in parallel layers, a cloud ormation characteristic of volcanic lountains. The edges of these layers rere fringed with a delicate seashell ink, deepening to a rudder hue as the loud thickened. One small cloud, dis[nct in itself, was entirely permeated y the sun rays, its luminosity giving he effect of a fire on the heights. The increasing light accentuated the lackness of the smoke arising from he Pelee crater, the centre of a vast rowing circle of light and color and hade, suspended in mid-heaven. Be>w, the flanks of the great mountain tretched sullenly to the sea, still dim, idistinct, chilling. It was a La Pelee unrise, a sunrise worthy of the brush f a painter yet to be born. High on the jutting outline of Morne 'Orange was the first visible sign of he devastation of St. Pierre. For lany, many years a gigantic white tatue of St. Mary the Virgin, called y the people Notre Dame des Garde, ad pointed to mariners the anchorage lace of the port. It was the most conpicuous object for miles about. The tatue had been splintered from its ase and lay about 40 feet to the south, t had faced the north and, as subseuent investigation showed, it lay with ie head still in the same direction, the jrce of the destru<*tive blow having een evidently in the middle of the enre structure, at the top of the base nd the foot of the statue. Just a few yards to the south of the illen Lady of the Watch could be "aced a perfect line of demarcation beiveen the zone of desolation and the one of safety. It was as clear as oough drawn with a giant pencil. On ne side of a line beginning to the wOitvarH nf Parhat and curving orthward to a short distance from the tatue running up over the undulating ills to the central ba'ckbone mounUns, all was ashen grayness?not a reen leaf, not a sprig of grass; on the ther side the greenery or rank tropial vegetation. Rounding the Morne d'Orange into ie roadstead of St. Pierre, the gray lankness of the devastated city struck Hence to our hearts. Half a mile way all that could be distinguished as a gray streak. As we came nearer ae outlines of what once might have een buildings could be made out. The eneral effect was unutterably weird nd sinister. So complete was the obliteration that othing was left of the exterior of any uiiding in the whole city, save the Caiiedral, to enable the observer who had ot known its location before to tell hether it was dwelling or factory, stale or palace, shop or chateau. Someimes in the Interior of the ruin a brokn and twisted household utensil or aricle of furnishing or decoration might roclaim the character of the structure tint hart stoort there. As in other French towns, although here were "better" residence sections nan others, very fine dwellings were mattered throughout all parts of the Ity, The sunken baths, in very many ases, proclaiming the abiding place of prosperous citizen. These were partiularly numerous in one part of the autheastern section. They were of Ircular shape, built of masonry usualr, with a carved marble inlet for the ater and a few marble steps leading own. They were from 12 to 16 feet i diameter, frequently, and from 3 to feet in depth. In every case these aths were found choked level with lud and ashes. In one magnificent bath, fully 20 feet l diameter, in the ruins of a house hat had stood to the north and east of he Cathedral, were uncovered three odies. The onrush of smoke and poisnous fumes, perhaps the outbreak of re, had driven these three to the bath ar safety; but there was no safety for ny living thing in St. Pierre that lorning. Another body was found with the ead in a large procelain bowl. This as an evident attempt to escape from allocating- fumes, but the basin, inLead of water, was banked high above le head with dry ashes when the body as found, and probably was so with1 a moment of the futile plunge for lfety. Some of us climbed to the site of the arbin des Plantes, that wonderful trop al outburst of flower, tree and tirub, the fairy garden of the world, or the mile from the military road anking the city to the outskirts of the ardens on the slopes of Mount Parasse the way over a trail of ash and jin blazed by no human foot since le blight of Pelee. The once luxuriantly wooded heights were bare as the side of a rock, and all that remained of the once magnificent gardens was a waste of desolation. For as far as the eye could see not a green thing was In sight, not even a leaf, not a tiny blade of grass. Giant palms were uprooted, shrivelled, blasted. Ravines and lakes, rivulets, walks, cascades, arbors, fountains?all blended In one gray hillside waste, shrouded In the omnipresent ash. As the last man clambered over the side of the Potomac, on the return to Fort de France, and a hurried count was made, one of the sailors uttered an exclamation and pointed shoreward. There, slowly walking along the water rront, m tne direction or tne volcano, was a woman, her dark figure looming against the gray ruins. We were in a hurry; but Captain McCormick didn't hesitate a moment in sending a boat ashore again. The woman was an aged negress. She absolutely refused to come aboard, saying that she was going to Fort de France when she got ready. So we steamed out and left her wandering calmly amid the awful desolation, the only living thing in the blighted city of St. rierre.?T. M. Dieualde, in New York Sun. A NOTED DUEL. The MnrlliiK-Zolllcnfrer Conflict III the FiftleN. The day of personal journalism has long since passed into that bourne of dead things from whence none return, but the Imprint left upon the record of the state of Tennessee by that period of school still remains as fresh and strong as if the characters who animated It were alive in all of their virile vigor. Chapter after chapter, could be written with the incidents and episodes, the men and the work, of that day as their subject. Nowhere could a richer field be found and amidst all of its pages there stands one name resplendent for Its erudition and Intellectual force, as well as for its gallantry and chivalry. That name Is Felix Kirke Zollicoffer, who fell upon the bloody field of Fisher Creek, with the hardearned epauletts of a Confederate general upon his shoulders. But It is not with his death that this story runs. It is of the duel which he fought in Nashville in 1852 with John L. Marling and the beautiful way in which the affair < was sealed. That year was the scene of the Pierce and Scott.presidential campaign. John L. Marling, who was a caustic and fearless writer, was editor of The Union, and Gen. Zollicoffer was editor of The Republican Banner. Over the issues of the campaign quite a heated argument had been created and sarcasm and invective ran riot in the pages of the two antagonistic journals. The Union, dated August 20, capped the climax. Even the printers who set the editorial matter up in that issue, knew that there would be trouble as soon as they began setting it up. General Zollicoffer felt that the editorial of that date was entirely too personal, and he sent word to Marling that he demanded redress. Matt Brown, of Nashville, acted as best man for General Zollicoffer, and, after a parley with Marling in such language as was required to express his idea of him; f??

Do you need any ? 3rown set the time and the place for he "cussing out," as we would call It. Vs programmed, General ZollicofTer nade his appearance upon the corner >f Cherry and Cedar streets at 9 o'clock he next morning, and Marling stepped >ut of his office, nearby, at the same noment. It was with a wide and icorchlr.g vocabulary of profanity that Seneral Zolllcoffer opened his "ex:hange of compliments" with Marling. \.s he concluded In a peroration particllarly lurid the latter responded with l ball from a derringer, and in half a nlnute both men were playing upon tach other with their pistols. The first ihot from Marllng's gun had struck hat belonging to General Zollicofter lear the trigger and had temporarily lisabled it, but calmly and coolly he epaired the slight damage while under darling's fire, and then, taking deliberite aim, he fired, and Marling dropped .o the sidewalk. He was not dead, lowever. General Zollicoffer's bullet lad struck him on the forehead and lad felled him, but he soon afterwards ecovered, and it was not- long afterwards that President Pierce appointed lim consul to the Guatemalan repubic. The climate in that Central American :ou?try ruined Marling's health and h? was forced to return to his native leath. He came up from New Orleans jy boat on his way home and when it irrived at the wharf in Nashville there was a large crowd assembled to welcome him. It was this assemblage vhlch attracted General Zollicoffer's Lttention, and by the incident which ranspired we learn another side of his . haracter. Upon inquiry he learned that Mr. Marling was tne centre 01 anniciiuu ind he pushed through the people until he came to his side, where he corlially extended his hand and had it as cordially grasped by Marling. It was vith unfeigned pleasure that the two irstwhile enemies "exchanged compliments" with such a difference in tenor from the first time they met that every )ne gossiped about it. General Zollicoffer spoke sincerely vhen he asked Mr. Marling if the voiind which he had inflicted had be>n ;he cause of his ill-health, and upon beng reasured that such was not the ;ase, though mischief-makers had spread a report to that effect, he not >nly expressed his gratification that the shot had not been the cause of his sickless, but he also extended his sympa:hy over the suffering he was undergoing on account of the climate of Guatenala.
